LACBC's City of Lights Launches Youth Program in East L.A.
Last Friday LACBC’s City of Lights program launched our first bicycle empowerment program aimed at targeting youth. The program is designed to take participants on a programmatic journey from bicycle mechanics to bicycle advocacy. There are five components to this program: bicycle mechanics, bicycle safety, creation of bicycle rides, public service announcements, and bicycle advocacy.
Each component is very unique in that they provide participants with the opportunity to explore each theme for a total of 6-8 hours on Friday’s for a full month with several instructors. The intention of the program is to “weave” all of the interrelated components together so that participants can fully understand the overall picture of the “bicycling world.” Read more about this new program and our first class.
